At the request of Moero, I've put up a TagBoard. I'm gonna test it out, see what happens. I've gotta be honest, I've never liked the idea of them, but I figure if those who use it prove to me they're mature enough to handle it, then so be it.

Sorry about Tuesday, as you can imagine, that comic up there was a royal pain in the butt to finish. However, all things are on track for Saturday's installment. Tune in, won't we?

Oh, and I read a couple funny webcomics today, thought I'd share them with you, as long as you don't desert me entirely.

This one is just funny.

This one is quite different than most, but it's interesting to read.

Stray Crayons
This one is going to do a link exchange with me, but it's so...intriguing that
I just had to mention it. It's extremely well done, but there aren't many pages yet (like I should talk...)

So yeah, give those a read, enjoy the Tagboard and...yeah, just keep reading Newscast...please?

I finally hit #70, and I'll be honest, for awhile there, I didn't think I would make it. 50 was a milestone, but I don't think I ever thought about it reaching beyond that which is probably why it stopped for so long afterwords. When you consider that most active comics span well into 200 strips, Newscast is still very young and has a long time left to go. I've gotten into a nice groove for working on it, so it's not a chore like it used to be. I only wish I got paid to do it which brings me to:


I've been out looking for a second job. And if I get one, the time I am able to devote to NC is going to be drastically cut back. *sigh* tis the life of a poor poor temporarily-between-colleges student. I'll be uploading a 'store' page soon (I hope) please support Newscast buy buying a shirt or a poster. It helps in more ways than just a donation, you'll also be spreading the word everytime you wear it/show it off. And the more people come to the site, the more time I can justify putting aside for it.

/pathetic rant

Imagine a world where emails are sent before they're written, and read before they arrive by people you don't even know.

Yo! Sorry about the lack of updation on Saturday, I was a little under the weather this weekend, and it prevented me from being at the computer, a TV, or anything with a screen, really. However, the plot moves onward. Without Cade? Apparently. Don't worry, he'll be back. Or will he? Yes. Stay Tuned.


I finally put Kingdom Hearts back in my PS2 and realized that I'd thusfar only logged about 15 hours into it. But after I reaquainted myself with the controls, I fell quickly back into it, and even discovered some stuff I think I missed entirely on my first foray into it. Also, I finally pulled myself out of the dark ages and got my friggin XBox 360 online. So if you wanna play against me (I really only have Dead or Alive 4) my gamertag is, of course, AyameExGoddess.

Also, Ryo-Ohki finally is reborn! Her new form is quite a bit different than her old one. But it's a joyous occasion nonetheless. Perhaps some pictures will be here soon.

Well, Fighter Chick Cam is at it again. Because I had lots and lots going on this weekend, I wasn't able to get any farther along on the comic than the script. However, now that my computer is back to 97% functionality, and all guests from out-of-town are gone, as well as like a thousand other things are done, NC will resume updation on Saturday. Anyway, I would like to reiterate that I really do like Fighter Chick Cam's guest comics, and in fact, I do think this one is hilarious.


There really isn't any, except that I cannot find any track-ball mice ANYWHERE anymore. I will not be buying an optical mouse either unless I have no other choice.

Check out the new parts of the site when I get them up. Yay!

Just a quick post today. The new mouse and my Keyboard's current malfunction, make it extremely difficult to work on my comic. However, it's up and stuff. Read it, love it.

In Other News:

Not too much else to report. I finally found a car, which is nice. Hopefully a new job will come soon. What else what else....Oh yeah, did you see that release for the new DSLite in Japan? Pretty amazing stuff. This proves that ideas are more powerful than graphics! Not that graphics aren't important too, but...yeah.

Oh...I think I need to call my parents.

EGAD! A crisis today that almost effected Newscast Saturday! So I was surfin the net this morning and all of a sudden, my computer goes ballistic! Everything locks up....I can't click on anything, close anything, or move anything. When I move the cursor, it's like I'm holding down the button.

I think -quite reasonably, I might add-;

So, my hatred for humanity rekindled, as well as all number of hypothesis going through my head as to where I might have gotten one (That email I got this morning? Kazaa left running? Star Trek fan encrypting them into the episodes I downloaded?) So I managed to activate my Virus Scan and left for work. Confident that when I returned, my Mcaffe would save me.

Oh how mistaken I was.

Long story short, after hours of panic, paranoia, and an excuse to watch Howls' Moving Castle, turns out my FUGGIN MOUSE WAS BROKEN! So I'll be picking up a new one tommorow and now Newscast can hopefully update Saturday.
Why am I posting this here? Just in case something else happens. The mouse I am currently using is only 1/10th as operative as my formerly-not broken one, so everything I do on this comp takes forever. Be forewarned.


I got most of the page updated. All the ComicGenesis logos are up and all the Keenspace stuff is gone. I'll be relocating stuff here shortly and adding some new buttons and pages. Keep on the lookout for them. Also, check out the new FAN ART on the page of the same name.


Like I said, I watched Howls' Moving Castle tonight and what a great movie it is. When it was in theaters, me and my friend Mina went to see it three nights in a row before they took it out. And I've been dying waiting for it to come out on DVD. If you haven't seen it yet, I suggest you doso. I liked Wallace and Grommit: The Curse of the Wererabbit, but Howls' Moving Castle is on another level of consiousness entirely. It should've won that Oscar....

Miyazaki, you are a GOD!

Yes...a day late. However, a comic I like it is....I don't know where I was going with that. I was distracted...the glory of Futurama on TV...anywho this was a fun comic to draw. Oh yes, and sorry to anyone who missed the last comic because I forgot to upload it on Taymation I won't do it again...without warning that is.

Also, I am gonna spend a little bit of tonight working on the website. So hopefully some of the stuff that hasn't worked for a long time will work...and if not tonight, then tommorow. But probably tonight.


Howls' Moving Castle is on DVD today. I hope you did your job and bought a copy. If you didn't, you should. Truly, it is one of the best animated movies of this, or any year. Heck, it's one of the best movies period.

The big brain am the greatest! Now I am leaving Earth for no raeson...

Greetings all.

Not too much to report here, but the new comic is up. I like it, especially the lighting effect in the cage. That was pioneered once already in this comic, but I liked it so I did it again.

The story marches onward, and Tuesdays' even has a touch of the funny.

In a slightly related story, I might stop updating on Taymation for awhile. I want to see if it boosts the readership here. And if so, by how much. Honestly, I like Taymation's format well enough, but it screws up all my comics and frankly, they're bad enough. They don't need assistance.


Not too much to report here. Still playing Super Princess Peach which rules. I also found out that the DS has a rumble pack, which the other day. It's not a great thing, but it's a cool little widget. Plus, since my DS is the ultimate one, it was a nessescity for me to own.

I've also been playing EQII a lot lately. Well, not a lot....but i played once. I keep trying to get back to CoH, but damned if I have the time lately. *sigh* I miss my friends in Paragon City.

Anyway, gotta go vaccum. It's Four Swords Night!

"Oh, and after a thourough search of the FIRST room..."
